Kyla, Me and the ZOO!

tk note: there will be no random musing, thoughts or attempts at inspiration here today...

Ya know, there's just something about seeing something you take for granted through the eyes of a 2 1/2 year old... and this weekend, I got to see -- really -- how awesome some little things are when you stop to see 'em through little eyes...

Ah, Labor day... the holiday allowing those of us in the states who work 90 hour weeks in the name of, er, whatever, a chance to pause...

This labor day, I spend some incredible one on one time with my daughter, Kyla, who taught me how to love the Zoo all over again. I had been planning to take her all weekend, and it was to be a suprise for her completely... she kept asking "where we goin' daddy? store to get nummies? mall to go shoppin? daddy office? 'wimmin?"

When we got there, she saw the giraffe and I could swear to you this child morphed into Diego, Dora's older cousin! She went on a pony ride... her FIRST! Her daddy LOVES riding... it's gay, but someday I'll tell you the stories of me, horses, shoveling s*** to get lessons, and a weird trip to a Texas hill country scout camp sometime...
The best was her trying to keep her hat on... LOL... Superbrat Kyla was worried about it sliding down her head, but I've gotta give it to her... she held onto the horn on that western saddle and rode that pony!


I'm going to be posting the pics over at www.wnok.com on my page for very selfish reasons which i'll detail here more later, but in the meantime... while I'm figuring out our website's new photo tools and ish, I hope you enjoy these... I've literally got about 100 or so to post over there as I break in my new page on WNOK.COM :)

Did I ever tell you just exactly how much I love my job? Being Kyla's dad is the greatest gig on earth...

... even greater than the pretty awesome gig I've got.

More tomorrow over at www.wnok.com...

'night!
